From our Family to Yours, we hope and pray that everyone in your life is healthy and feeling well. To say we are living in uncertain times is a massive understatement and fear is normal. However, Faith is what fuels us through times of fear and uncertainty. Many of you have reached out to see if our office is open during this crisis. Please rest assured that as Healthcare Providers, treating patients is what we do. The Infection Control and Anti-viral protocols that we have practiced for 30 years to protect our Patients and Staff from viruses stronger than Covid-19 is what the rest of the world is just catching up to now. So the answer is YES we are open for treating emergency patients on an as needed basis and taking care of patient's needs. Our On-Site Laboratory also makes us uniquely qualified to handle emergencies in a timely and efficient way.

Additionally, many dental offices on Staten Island and Brooklyn have simply shut their doors completely during this crisis leaving many patients with emergencies and potential infections in need. The last thing we want is for those patients to resort to emergency rooms when hospitals and staff are already extremely overburdened. Rest assured that we and our On-Site Lab are welcoming new emergency patients in need, to treat you and your family in a timely and safe way.

We are also working on a proprietary method to perform consultations using tele-dentistry and should have a method on-line to help patients with that soon.

Humans are resilient, New Yorkers even more than most!!! We will get through this. We are here to help however we can.

Health News Article- A Whiter Smile

By SEO Admin on September 21, 2013

Article Title: Eat and Drink Your Way to a Whiter Smile


Article Source: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/44008827/ns/health-oral_health/

Article Review:

Through this health news article, different ways that you can whiten and brighten your smile are discussed with the help of food and beverages. Some smile enhancing foods and drinks include:

  • Crunchy foods- foods like apples, celery, and carrots work as an abrasive scrub for teeth and promote the production of saliva.



  • Strawberries- these berries contain malic acid, which naturally can whiten teeth.



  • Oranges and Pineapples- the acid in these fruits can whiten the surface of teeth. In addition, the acid can kill bacteria that lead to bad breath and tooth decay.



  • Cheese and Dairy- dairy products contain lactic acid, which can protect against tooth decay resulting in a more beautiful and healthy smile.


There are foods and drinks to avoid as well that can cause staining to occur on your teeth. Coffee, tea, red wine, soda, soy sauce, and blueberries can all stain your teeth, so proceed with caution. Drinking water when consuming a staining agent can reduce the amount of staining that occurs.

While this research article discussed multiple ways that you can whiten your smile, at Staten Island Smiles, we also offer teeth whitening services that can make a dramatic difference in your smiles look.
